I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Sometimes I find that title embarrassing.
Stella: Lady Human, look at Miss Sweetie. Does that look like something you would like to be queen of?
Me: It is kind of funny.
Miss Sweetie: What? Who’s funny? I want to laugh, too.
Me: Sweetie, you were sleeping with your ear in your water bowl. Don’t you feel that?
Miss Sweetie: No. Yes. Maybe. It is cool on my ear.
Stella: Your ear is swimming in the water without the rest of you.
Miss Sweetie: My ear likes the water and my water bowl doesn’t have enough room for my whole body.
Me: I patched your puppy pool and you didn’t even spend five minutes in it today.
Miss Sweetie: It was okay, but inside there is the cool air and my ear enjoys dipping in the water by itself.
Stella: Lady Human, I think she has lost her mind.
Me: Well, I sort of understand. I can cool off by wiping a cool, wet cloth across the back of my neck.
Miss Sweetie: You should dip your ear in cool water. It’s wonderful.
